Mobile Internet Suspended In Assam To Prevent Possible Malpractices During Exam


Guwahati: The Assam government today suspended mobile internet for four hours to prevent possible malpractices during written examination for recruitment in various state government departments.

Besides, prohibitory orders under Section 144 were also clamped in all the 27 districts where the examinations are being conducted, a senior official said.

More than 14.30 lakh candidates are expected to appear for recruitment of nearly 30,000 Grade-III and -IV posts of various government departments (on August 21, 28 and September 11). While the Grade-IV tests were held on August 21 in two shifts, the Grade-III examinations are being held on Sunday. The tests for more posts under Grade-III are scheduled for September 11.

All examinations are being conducted by the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA).

The state government said the move was aimed to ensure “free, fair and transparent” conduct of the recruitment test and to check unfair means.
